Padman showed impressive performance in the first week at the box office. The film enjoyed the benefit of partial holidays on the weekdays. But Padman encountered its first big fall on the 8th day and faced competition from the new release, Black Panther on 2nd Friday. Padman also gets affected because of its subject as well as people from many places still don’t discuss these matters openly. Let’s have a look at Padman 2nd Saturday Collection early estimates in details.
Effect of Topic on Film’s Performance
The topic of Padman is different from the movie Toilet Ek Prem Katha. The latter gained people’s attention because of the social problem of sanitation, especially in the rural areas. But in the case of Padman, the subject revolves around the menstrual hygiene of women. In most of the places, people find it uncomfortable to discuss openly issues related to it. That’s why Padman lacks behind TEPK in terms of box office collection.
9th Day Collection Early Estimates
Padman witnessed the first crack in its collection on the 2nd Friday and only managed to earn Rs. 2.10 crores. The drop is significant because of the stiff competition from Padmaavat and Black Panther. But the good thing is Padman is not facing any competition from Aiyaary. Due to flop show of Aiyaary, Akshay Kumar’s film would get benefitted this week.
On the 2nd Saturday, Padman is likely to show around 30-35% growth and would earn around Rs. 2.75 crores today. Still, the film has done a remarkable job at the box office and is expected to collect around Rs. 8 crores over the second weekend.
